We hire for full-time roles, contract positions, and internships at our offices in Washington DC, Shanghai, Mexico City and Singapore. If you don't see a current opening that is a great fit but you would like to be on our radar, please drop us a note to say hello.

Who We Look For

Our Purpose as a market intelligence and advisory firm is To Provide Clarity Where There Isn't. The Core Values of our firm, identified by our team members,  are: Be Deep, Be Straightforward, and Be a Winner.

We have a rigorous hiring process. Through the interview process and our famous 'homework assignments,' successful candidates demonstrate alignment with our Purpose and Core Values, and a fit with our international and dynamic team culture. We look for intelligence, high level logical thinking skills, fluency in English (and typically additional major languages), a deep interest in global business, experience of having studied or worked outside one's native country, and relevant internships and/or full-time work experience.

We visit highly regarded universities in the US and Asia to recruit on campus for internships and entry-level roles, and we strongly encourage any qualified applicants to apply directly through our website. 

What We Offer

Most new employees join us within a Delivery track (as Research Analysts, Consultants, and Managers) or a Commercial track (as Business Development Associates and Sales Directors). It is possible to transition from a Delivery track to a Commercial track and vice versa. 

Across our offices we operate a lean internal staffing model of intelligent, hard-working and efficient professionals who oversee projects across multiple countries. This structure allows us to deliver exceptional value and impact to our clients. This means employees at all level have the opportunity to work directly with senior executives at Fortune 1000 companies, smaller high-growth companies, investors, and other organizations conducting business globally. You will also have an opportunity to work with great team members at Emerging Strategy.

You will take on great responsibility at an early stage of your career and in doing so you will gain a solid introduction to business not only through your involvement in market intelligence and strategy projects related to our clients, but also through your involvement and contribution to an entrepreneurial organization. The skills you develop at Emerging Strategy will be useful throughout your career, wherever that may take you.

Our offices are located in major global cities, with access to all the opportunities and excitement that they have to offer.

After Emerging Strategy

A majority of managers at Emerging Strategy started at the entry-level, which means upward mobility within the firm is very accessible. Whether you choose to remain at Emerging Strategy for a while or pursue opportunities elsewhere, your time here will provide you with an excellent foundation for future success. You'll leave Emerging Strategy with a wealth of hands-on experience and with a marketable skill set around research, analysis, strategy, business development, client management, and international business. We love to see our alumni thrive! Some go to 'the client side,' while others join management consulting practices, the diplomatic service, or pursue an entrepreneurial track, among other career choices.

We keep in touch with alumni via our LinkedIn Emerging Strategy Alumni group and our WeChat group, and alumni are always welcome to drop by for our Friday happy hour to catch up with the next generation of Emerging Strategy team members and to share war stories.
